In episode 2, Sandy and Cory discuss the “Imprecision Hypothesis of Chronic Pain” recently published by Lorimer Moseley and Johan Vlaeyen. Potential clinical implications are discussed as well as a rebuttal that has already been submitted. Hard hitting questions are tackled, like “Is pain a stimulus or a response?”, “How does associative learning apply to clinical treatment?”, and “Does Cory have the mental fortitude to beat a 5 year old in Battleship?”
